How can i reduce maintenance.

My wife filed maintenance case. We dont have children.
I am an it professional. 
She did engineering and did job before marriage. after marriage she stopped working.
 
I have below questions
Is it true that we need to pay 1/3 rd of our salary.
How my income will be determined, is it based on current payslip or average salary of a year?
IT job is not permanent, If I loose job after some time, still do I need to pay?.
Is court has the right to ask my payslip from the company. 
I dont want to pay my hard earned  money to her. My mother, brother and sister(staying with my mom after marriage) are dependants on my income.
she filed false 498a case. so can i provide wrong payslip with low salary and submit in the court. will it be any issue.(My wife knows my salary)
Some says dont work and dont pay...How come we survive with out working?
What is best way to reduce the maintenance?
If she remarry is maintenance will be cancelled?

As ur wife is engineering graduate and earn money she is not eligible to get maintenance.

If your wife is currently working and earning enough to lead a comfortable life then you dont need to pay otherwise you got to do.if you happen to lose your job while you are providing maintenance then you need to file a change in circumstances petition before the court.court can summon your employer to provide your salary and other required details.once she remarries she wont be entitled to receive maintenance from you

Bring back wife if you are unable to pay maintenance.  Rest all efforts of transfereing property etc will turn futile.

sir

think pragmatically not pedantically because you are thinking only trurth will be mentioned and mostly cases are made after treating facts and based on false ground so try to resolve you matter

thank you

i mean to say your wife may incorporate false grounds of cruality against you and your loved ones for the purpose of taking money from you indirectly?

I tried to bring back my wife 10-15 times in 2 years period with the help of relatives/elders. But
She is not interested to come back and making false allegations.

I know its not right way to trnasfer the property, due to gender baised laws and long trail runs, I want to safe guard my self. It can help me to hire a good lawyer.

why should I pay who is interested in my money instead of me.

Now I lost my job also, I hope you understand my pain and help me with good suggestion in below scenario.

1. My wife did job before marriage. I dont have the experieance letter, but got some pics in facebook with their collegues. is that helpful to me to prove that she did job.

2. I lost my job but I may get in couple of months, which salary court will consider old/new job.

Smart as

You will somehow pay, how, court wont ask, if you wont pay, salary or no job or whatever, they put u in jail and do vasooli, dont think that they will let you go.  Jails are filled with men who dont pay alimony and they are doing time with inmates who have got life imprisonment.

Best is go for mutual divorce, pay her alimony one time.
